4:06am
123-year-old record hitting 76. a lot at 55. washington, d.c. at 62. we'll do that, as well. we have fog to talk about coming up in the nation's weather but for now back to dan and bianna. >> ginger, thank you. once again happy birthday. the latest on the deadly flu epidemic. those who haven't received their flu shot could get shut out. the vaccine is in low supply and the outbreak to so bad people are now going to great lengths to avoid getting sick. john schriffen is here. good morning, john. >> reporter: bianna, good morning. waiting inside an emergency room is probably one of the last places where people would like to spend their weekend. that's why many in the country are taking extra precautions to avoid the flu especially before heading out into a popular public place. ♪ this morning, churchgoers across the country may have one extra pit stop on their way to the pulpit. many churches like this one in upstate new york hope to ward off the flu epidemic by

4:09am
white house this morning. >> reporter: not so fast is what some republicans are saying so for the third time we'll hear heated words from northeast lawmakers when this comes up in the house of representatives. >> so bad. >> reporter: 2 1/2 months and the victims of sandy and their representatives have had enough. >> they have suffered long enough. they need to hear from their government. >> reporter: they are helping, but in chunks. congress passed more than $9 billion if aid a week ago. but the states and the president have asked for another $50 billion. instead the house plan calls for just $17 billion for what it calls emergency aid. >> absurd. absolutely absurd. we demand nothing less than we have given the rest of the country. >> reporter: and surprisingly some republicans who have opp e opposed sandy aid are from hurricane regions. one from mississippi called for more help for katrina relief but
4:10am
opposed sandy relief making him a target for securing. >> many of my constituents are still dealing with the effects of hurricane katrina. >> let's pretend instead of yours it's someone else's in new york and instead of seven months later it's two years later. >> reporter: we sent them there to do the work for us, not to sit down there and play with each other. >> reporter: but republicans want specifics. we asked christie's office three times to explain their request. nearly $5 billion for housing. is that temporary housing, rebuilding homes or loans? and $700 million for individual assistance. is that food, rent, actual payments or loans? christie's office has not answered any of those questions. still haven't heard from him either. the house is back tomorrow night. this bill will be debated on tuesday and, dan and delegate, we expect the vote to happen wednesday. >> keep pushing for answers. thank you, david.
4:11am
sandy relief, just one of many big fights brewing in congress. the looming and unpleasant sequel to the fiscal cliff. here the forecast, the host of abc's "this week," george stephanopoulos who knows everything and can see the future too. the vice president will submit his proposal for post-newtown gun control on tuesday we believe. it seems to be coalescing around cracking down on high-capacity magazines and beefing up background checks on gun buyers. can the administration muscle those two things through. >> the white house says they will continue to push the weapons assault ban but know they won't get it through. they do believe they can create a consensus particularly around this idea of background checks, universal background checks and nra not backing down which is white house the will look at executive orders this he can act on on their own. more data sharing for where sales are coming from and see people like senator chuck schumer and call for voluntary,
4:12am
big retailers to voluntary suspend any sales of assault weapons while this is being debated. but, dan, you look since newtown and the two months since then there's been a huge spike in the sale of assault weapons over the debate of whether or not to ban them. >> the debt ceiling and paul krugman has been advocates an n obscure proposal to mint a trillion dollar coin. the president is looking not to negotiate own the debt ceiling. >> the only option is for the congress to pass. no substitute for congressional action and see the republicans in the house are saying we're only going to increase the debt limit if indecembering the debt ceiling is met dollar or dollar for cuts. there doesn't appear to be away around it and there's more stalemate. >> george stephanopoulos, thanks
4:13am
for your reporting. two powerhouse roundtables, "this week" coming up later right here on abc. george, thanks again. the golden globes are tonight and awards have been considered a good indicator for the oscars but a controversy is brewing over one of the top contenders, "zero dark thirty," the director was snubbed and legendary actors are telling members not to cast ballots for it because of graphic scenes involving torture. abc's john muller is here with more. >> good morning, bllg. there is no doubt "zero dark thirty" is the most controversial film of award season. now, opponents say glorifies the torture of terror suspects and some sources are claiming that got major celebrity backup. >> when was the last time you saw bin laden? >> reporter: it seems like this one depicting the role of enhanced interrogation techniques that have martin sheen and ed asner reportedly joining the backlash against
4:14am
best picture nominee "zero dark thirty." >> i am bad news. i'm going to break you. >> reporter: sheen, asner and others are asking fellow academy members to send "zero dark thirty" with zero oscars. >> you can't separate artistry and morality and i hope my fell le members of the academy will will consider the morality of each nominee. >> the more people like martin sheen or recognize names that have become a part of it the more it is on people's minds as they get ready to vote. >> reporter: on friday, the studio sony pictures jumped to the film's defense releasing this statement ""zero dark thirty" does not advocate torture. to not include that part of history would have been irresponsible and inaccurate." >> there are people who are very upset about it and there are people who can't understand why anyone is upset about it at all. we generally expect different things. >> reporter: it was directed by kathryn bigelow and it's long
4:15am
been plagued by controversy. during it congressional members did not like how much information was given to filmmakers. >> to my knowledge i never received any. >> reporter: throughout the opening weekend fans and stars alike were greeted by orange jumpsuited protesters. they're hoping they won't wipe them out come oscar night. >> it's causing people to take sides, media critics even the acting director of the cia weighing in. it's not hurting sales at the box office of t. it is on track to make $25 million this weekend. >> a lot of headlines. all right, time for a check of the weather and back over to ginger zee. hey, ginger. >> good morning, on the east coast not only will record warmth be the story but fog creates problems less than a half night at missile. traveling by road or by arrid's check ahead. from the carolinas up to maine we have fog advisories, pci's

so again we'll be following some of that severe weather potential. there's not a huge part, but right there in pars of tennessee and alabama, watch your local abc stations today. >> she keeps trying to change the subject from her birthday to the weather. >> embarrassing here. now to the cat with the astonishing internal gps. her name is holly and she got separated from her family while on vacation. 200 miles away from home. what happened next was an extraordinary journey and amazing reunion and here's abc's clayton sandell. >> reporter: the amazing story of a cat on a crusade. >> miss holly here snuck out between our legs and decided to see the world. >> reporter: back in november jacob and bonnie richter brought holly along on a road trip to daytona speedway. scared by fireworks she ran away. >> we started looking for her right away. >> reporter: but daytona wasn't
4:18am
holly's scene so she apparently started walking headed south, of course, she could have taken a side trip to vero beam or maybe a quick detour to disney world. instead she kept tracking then a knew days ago she showed up in barbara missoula's yard within a whisker of her life. >> she was so skinny, so thin, bones and weak. >> reporter: missoula took it to a vet who scanned her microchip and soon a reunion. >> we opened up the cage and holly climbed out and went into his arms and just cuddled with him. >> reporter: in her two-month journey she clocked 190 miles. >> really unusual for cats to find their way loam over long distances though i think it's somewhat of a miracle. >> reporter: how many lives of her nine did she use? holly isn't talking. for "good morning america," clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> great story. moving on now, sad news for

4:20am
of thing obi-wan or obama wa nchn ki kenobi would have thought of. if that 25,000 agreed, the administration would sponz. but they began to petition for strange things from recognizing ping-pong as a school sport to deporting perceiers morgan for views on guns but the most popular idea of all. a petition to, quote, secure resources and funding and begin construction of a death star by 2016. the reason, to quote spur job creation and strengthen our national defense. nearly 35,000 people went online and agreed and the white house true to its word responded saying interga lactic domination probably isn't the best idea in the universe, first the price
4:21am
tag, a budget gusting 850 quadrillion dollars and the administration does not support blowing up planets and the best, why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a death star with a fundamental flaw that can be expolited by a one-man starship? all politics aside, they do have a point. and the white house response came from paul shawcross, the science and space branch. he said despite the white house's position, we do have floating assistance on the space station and in his words a president who knows his way around a light sabre and advance marshmallow ka none, who knew. >> safe a subject he may not discuss in his roundtable. >> i waited my entire career for ron to say alderon.
